The All Progressive Congress in Edo State has raised an alarm over the alleged entrance of thugs into Benin City and the further recruitment of thugs loyal to Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State.
The ruling APC alleged that the recruitment occurred in Warri.
This was revealed in a statement by the chairman of the Edo APC Media Campaign Council, Mr. John Mayaki, who said the thugs gained entrance into the city and that more thugs are planning to arrive.
He disclosed, “One of my good sources in Delta called me and was telling me that our election will be ‘bloody.’
“He told me thugs in Delta are currently mobilising. He has some of them in his contact and he, Obaseki, is looking for more thugs.
“Some of them have already taken off from Warri yesterday and more will be leaving there this morning. These are people that were given clear instructions on what to do once they enter Edo. They will lie low and perpetrate some kidnaps then unleash on Saturday morning.”
